JBA Consulting Awarded Fit 4 Offshore Renewables (F4OR) Accreditation
We are pleased to announce that JBA Consulting have been awarded Fit 4 Offshore Renewables accreditation, demonstrating our commitment to offshore renewable energy projects around the world.
Achieving F4OR accreditation allows JBA to extend our unique consulting and product services, and as a result we will now be more readily identifiable in the offshore renewable energy industry.
To achieve accreditation, businesses with products and services relevant to offshore renewable energy are required to complete an extensive assessment process.
In the ‘Business Excellence’ phase, which focused on our core business management systems, JBA were deemed to already be a highly capable and competent organisation, with effective and robust management systems.
We also rated highly in the ‘Sector-Specific’ phase, further demonstrating our suitability for the programme and highlighting how the targeted support from F4OR would allow us to develop specific Technical and Commercial Risk Management approaches.
Mark Lawless, JBA Consulting Director said: “Participating in the F4OR programme has helped us drive business excellence in our offshore wind related activities. We believe that the F4OR granting will further strengthen our position and promote our business within the offshore renewable energy sector, allowing us to engage and collaborate further with industry leaders and new customers in this rapidly expanding industry, in the UK and other emerging markets.”
Andrew Stormonth-Darling, Programme Manager at ORE Catapult Said: “JBA impressed the F4OR team from the outset. Not only with respect to their existing capability and approach to consulting and software services, but also through their openness to learn and continuously improve. JBA has world-leading experience in the evaluation and mitigation of logistics and metocean related risks, helping offshore renewable energy developers and owners improve safety, save time and reduce costs. We are looking forward to supporting JBA as it grows in the industry, delivering value for clients and driving sustainable economic growth.”
